Here are seven super spring ideas for fun in and near Oswestry, Shropshire at Easter!

1. Come to Oswestry Market on Good Friday 29th March 2024.

It’s the regular artisan’s street market on the last Friday in the month and in March there is the addition of lots of family friendly activities at the Easter Fun Day on the Bailey Head market square. Come along for games, fairground rides (small charge), donkeys, entertainment, face painting, Easter hunt & more.

2. Oswestry Town market hosts its regular late opening on Good Friday too.

The indoor market hall is open from 6 pm with live music from 7pm to 10 pm. It’s a friendly, relaxed evening with the market cocktail bar open and food stalls.

3. Easter Saturday, 30th March 2024 brings the popular Street Circus back to Oswestry.

It’s the third time this wacky event has been in town and we love it! Watch out for some crazy supermarket trolleys careering down the high street, be a part of performance on the market square and maybe try your hand at plate spinning!

4. It’s full steam ahead as our heritage railways get going again.

Hop on for a ride with Cambrian Heritage Railways down to Weston Wharf and join in the Easter egg hunt. How about a drink at local brewery, Stonehouse before the return trip?

"🏰✨ Dive into the heart of Shrewsbury's Castle Quarter – the epicenter of history and grandeur! 🏰 Home to four of the town's largest historic treasures – Shrewsbury Castle, Library, Prison, and Train Station. 

Did you know Shrewsbury Castle's foundations were laid in 1083 by the 1st Earl of Shrewsbury, Roger de Montgomery? 
Montgomery, a cousin of William the Conqueror, earned this castle and more as a thank-you for his aid during the Norman conquest.

From royal stronghold to a 16th-century transformation, Shrewsbury Castle has quite the story. Now, it stands majestically, housing the Shropshire Regimental Museum. 👑🏰 Ready to step into the pages of history?
